Swift Plot Diagram

This document details the specifics of the Swift Plot diagram type. It describes its purpose and specifics. Before reading this text, you may wish to review the basics of using a Diagram in the WinForms Chart Control.

This document consists of the following sections.

Expanded Swift Plot Overview

The SwiftPlotDiagram object is intended to plot series of only the SwiftPlotSeriesView type. The main purpose of this diagram type is to construct real-time charts in which points are added in a short period of time, and/or charts with a large number of points (tens of thousands and more). To meet these requirements, this diagram type is built upon a special optimized algorithm, with its core being lightened as much as possible, to achieve the best performance.

Note that both this diagram and the corresponding series view type still support most features available for other 2D chart types: such as multiple panes, secondary axes, financial indicators and regression lines. So, in most aspects, this diagram type is similar to the XY-Diagram type.

To learn more about Swift Plot charts, refer to Swift Plot Series View.

Expanded Accessing a Diagram

To access the Swift Plot Diagram's options at design time, click your chart's diagram, to select it. Then, in the Properties window, the Swift Plot Diagram's properties will be represented.

This example demonstrates how to create a real-time chart (which is updated in a very short period of time), based on the Swift Plot.

Note that this series view type is associated with the Swift Plot Diagram type, and you should cast your diagram object to this type, in order to access its specific options.
